LLLC Winter Scene

Time for another La-La Land Crafts project as it is Monday again already! Our theme this week is to create a scene so of course I had to make a winter scene! This also means that I am now done with my first Christmas card for April! Yey!

I decided to do no-lines again, this time on Winter Molli. I also coloured in the a tree die and the lamp-post die as I didn’t want them in solid colours, You can find a list of all the LLLC products below the photo. I’ve primarily used Maja Design and Bazzill paper, to which I added a bit of white acrylic paint to give the card more of a winter and snow feeling. I put Molli on foam tape and put her feet so that it looks like she is standing in front of the card with her feet on the table.

Here is a photo taken from the side.

LLLC April Showers

Monday again already. That means it is time for me to show off another La-La Land Crafts project. The theme for this week is April Showers. I thought Dancing in the Rain Marci would be perfect for this, and I decided yet again to go with a combination of colours I don’t use very often, green and pink.

As some of you may have seen, I’ve never been one to use a lot of dies. 3 or so, sure, but not a lot on one project. So I decided to challenge myself, and a challenge it was. From three dies onwards I had to tell myself “just one more, come on” and then “one more die, you can do it”, hahaha. It worked, though. I have used SEVEN different ones! That is a lot for me! You can find a list of them all below.

The papers are mostly by Bazzill (the plain colours) and Maja Design.

The side on view shows how the butterflies are only attached by their body and that Marci and the middle background border have both been put on foam tape to give it more dimention.

A photo from another angle where you can see the bottom flower better and how the butterfly pops up.

James the bear is watching the snow fall

Here you can see the second Christmas card I made for March. This means I am still on track for two a month this year, phew! Barely made it with this one as well. I guess I will try to do better in April and start a bit earlier.  At least, I still had snow when I made this.. not sure I will manage to make anything once tempratures start realising summer is only a couple of months away! Oh well, I’ll try!

I went with a Lili of the Valley bear. This is possibly my very favourite bear and I love his different poses. His name is James, by the way, if you didn’t know. Lili of the Valley was one of the first stamp brands I started using, and even though they have stopped selling their rubber stamps, I still have mine from when I first got them in 2011! I’m glad they’re still doing digital stamps, as they’re great!

I’ve used Noor Design and Maja Design paper, a bit of acrylic paint and cheesecloth as well as Baker’s Twine, a Kort og Godt charm and some candi. Those are all high on my list of things I like to use to make Christmas cards.

Here is another photo where the card is laying down flat:

Copics used: (blue) B00, B95, B97, B99, (bear) E41, E42, E43, E44, (snow and hat) C1, C3, C5

A bit of turquoise

We have a new challenge up at Copic Marker Norge and this is my inspirational card for it. On the moodboard for this month I was inspired by the colours: turquoise and white with a hint of yellow, as well the decorations and flowers. The image I chose for this is by Ching-Chou Kuik. I do love getting to make a card using my favourite colours!

I’ve used papers by Maja Design and Bazzill, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, a stamp from Noor Design to create the effect around the image which I used distress oxide ink on, a Happy Birthday stamp from My Favorite Things, and a border die from La-La Land Crafts.

Here you can see the card from a side on view. There are several elements put on foam pads to create a sense of dimension.

Here is a close-up of the flower arrangement

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (hair) E41, E42, E43, E44, (dress) BG49, BG53, BG78, G40, Y04, Y38, E97, (shadow) W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, (flowers) RV17

Thinking of you Marci

Another Monday, another La-La Lands Crafts day! It is getting pretty close to easter and I doubt I will have much time to craft over the next two weeks or so. For once I am pretty much on top of things, though. Go me!

This week our theme is Flowers. A good excuse for me to make a new cards with flowers on. You will find a list of products I’ve used with links to the items below the photos, above the list of Copics. I’ve gotten better at layering up cards again lately at least, not all clean and simple cards, but I am still not great at using flowers on a lot of projects. But here is one! The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts, the papers by Maja Design and charm by Tim Holtz.

The leaves are pretty great. They cut wonderfully and you have one going each direction! Yey!

Here you can see how I’ve layed up the dies. First the Filigree Flower under the image, then the Deco Border around the image itself, and lastly the butterfly on top.

I love these butterflies! I’ve given them a prominent body with a string of pearls.

Here is one final photo of the card from the floral arrangement side.
